Roger became a member of St Ives Society of Artists shortly after moving to Cornwall in 1997, Prior to that he lived and taught art and ceramics in Oxfordshire. He was born in Birmingham where he studied at Birmingham College of Art.
His work has been exhibited with the Royal West of England Academy, The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, and the Royal Society of Marine Artists. Currently his work can be seen at St Ives Society of Artists and at a number of local galleries.
Although he has painted in many different countries, his work is firmly rooted in the landscape of West Cornwall, his home and studio in Newlyn providing the perfect base for his plein air expeditions. It is the light that inspires, and he can often be found on the beach or in the harbour striving to record its special qualities and to celebrate this special place.
